Best of Boston

2013 Best Comedy Club

The Comedy Studio

Few comedy clubs these days are actually dedicated to the craft—which makes this Harvard Square studio a rare gem. Not only does it fill seats six nights a week with a variety of acts, it also devotes time to nurturing up-and-coming cutups and runs a sought-after comedian-in-residence program. And because it’s located above the Hong Kong, you can get your laughs with a side of greasy-good Peking ravioli and a scorpion bowl.
